LAWTON, Okla._Residents in northwest Lawton neighborhood are still dealing with a headache after flooding closed down a bridge in May.
The bridge on Northwest Micklegate Boulevard near Northwest Folkstone Way has been closed since May because of an 8-foot wide sinkhole. The barricaded bridge is cutting off a portion of the neighborhood from the rest of the area.
At last week's City Council meeting, members decided to use surplus funds from another completed streets project. The city estimates it will cost between $80,000 and $90,000 to fix the sinkhole.
